“Fresh Food”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff. Fresh ingredient.
Fish & Chip - fish is perfectly cook. Tender and moist. But let down by the chip - not crispy, slightly undercooked.

“delicious fresh food”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

beautiful fresh food. The menu has evaluate over the years and still it is delicious, the pumpkin soup is heaven for me among so many other dishes.
the wine selection is good, the staff friendly and the owner often around to check if customers are happy.
I also enjoyed a lot the art exhibition that are renewed on the walls on a regular basis.
One of my favourite place to go to during my two years living in Cebu. I came back last October and it was still has good as I remembered it.

The food in Canvas is definitely something classy and something that you would want to taste. It is definitely put out in a wonderful way and once you taste it the different flavors would come out of your mouth.

There are different kinds of things that you could order there ranging from pork, beef, fish to much more. There drinks there are also very good.

“Great variety and taste”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Gotta say, wasn't expecting an Aussie joint in a shopping centre to be so good. But it was, and then some. The menu is huge and you may find yourself wanting to try many of the dishes, which is handy, as many of them come in starter and main portions, so knock yourself out glutton. Being an Aussie place, your spoiled for meat, but also some great fish dishes. The ossobucco was particularly tasty, and with mash potatoes and thick sauce was just the ticket. Another fine dish involved pork medallions and prawns. Deserts were moreish (we got some extra free ones as it was the day after valentines day and they had some tasty sweets left over). Service was very professional (watched over by the stern Patron who clearly makes everything tick to a Western rather than SEA clock). If I was ever back in Cebu City (unlikely), I would go back for sure.

“One of the best....”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

I frequented Ayala Mall quite alot during December 2013 and this restaurant became a regular part of my day. Exceptional menu, awesome food and very tasty with a great staff, maybe a little to attentive. But overall a wonderful place with reasonable prices and an Australian flavor.
